LABORATORY FOR CHARACTERIZATION OF SPENT NUCLEAR FUEL AND RADIOACTIVE WASTE – LABORAD

LABORAD ensures the development and certification of methods of radionuclide characterization of high and medium active waste for interim storage or final storage.

Activities

  • Radionuclide characterization through gamma spectrometry of radioactive casks using ISOTOPIC computer code;
  • Determination of gamma emitting radionuclides activity in spent nuclear fuel;
  • Determination of U, Pu and I in the samples containing actinides through alpha spectrometry;
  • Determination of uranium isotopic composition through mass spectrometry;
  • Determination of lanthanides inventory using high performance liquid chromatography.

Certifications

  • The Laboratory is notified by CNCAN through the NOTIFICATION LI-VP02/2011.

Experimental facilities and equipment

  • High-performance liquid chromatograph (HPLC) WATERS with UV-VIS detector for 2 wavelengths and anions detector;
  • Alpha Spectrometer ORTEC 576A with 2 measuring chambers with detectors type TR-021-300-100 with a guaranteed resolution of 21keV;
  • Alpha-beta spectrometer global type MPC-2000 DP-Proteon Instrument Corporation;
  • Laboratory gamma spectrometer;
  • Spectrometric system for characterizing through gamma spectrometry of solid radioactive waste;
  • Thermal Ionization Mass Spectrometry (TIMS) Finnigan MAT261 type.
